“Spectral Seduction” is a work developed in the context of “Binario 5 Festival”, a festival organized within the cultural schedule of Roma Capitale to celebrate Fellini’s centenary.
Based on the question of morality and amorality in the work of art, this cinematic poem is a tribute to the surrealist cinema of the 30s and to the genius of Salvador Dalì.
The work is based on a text by Salvador Dalì from the book:
“The Antology of Black Humor” by André Breton, 1937 Paris.
